New minimalistic makeup trends will rule spring-summer 2017. Fashion week’s runways inspire us to keep our makeup light and dewy with a statement dark lip or eye. This is how you can achieve the new it-look.
Now the holidays are officially behind us, we can start to look ahead again. With the SS17 in mind I’d love to take you through the most prominent makeup trends of the approaching spring and summer. I will be doing this in a little series spread over the next few weeks. This week, I will be showing you the New Minimalism look.
Last year, we slowly started to make our way back out of the wormhole that is hard contour and anything Kardashian related. The Hadid girls showed us a new way of life and the dewy look wormed its way back into our lives.
This year, we are adding an interesting feature to this very minimal look. But don’t go for a full face of makeup just yet. SS17 is all about the new minimalism. This means that or makeup shall be bare with a dark statement lip OR a dark statement eye. But don’t you start mixing the two!
In the photo above, I kept my base light by using only color correcting products where needed. – Under the eyes, yikes. – I applied a light layer of foundation, but went all out with the higlighter. I also highlighted the inner corners of my eyes and added a light shimmer on the middle of my eyelids to really give myself a healthy glow.
For this look, I decided to put the main focus on the lips. I coated them with a dark berry lipstick. To give the otherwise flat look a bit of dimension and an edge, I added a dark warm eyeshadow with a shimmer in the middle of my lips. The coolness of the lipstick and the warmth of the eyeshadow came beautifully together and created an intergalactic vibe.5
